    I decided to upgrade. A little more rome for the crew. It's also better on fuel than my old f-250 gaser.

    12.4 MPG with the trailer

    Marc, very nice. I was looking into getting one this fall but we'll see how lawn care goes this season. I was looking into just an extended cab or even just a regular cab, with a turbo, But we're talking 38-47k don't know if I want to be a slave to my equipment.

    I feel like I am a slave to my business so my business should buy me a nice truck :p

    Try playing around with the Build and Price thing and then look at the incentives they offer. I was able to build a F-350 4x2 Tow Boss Dually Reg. Cab XL PSD/TS for $30,200. Then $500 off for being a college student, another $2000 in incentives and then some other regional incentives, and it was down to around $26,500 once I had finished playing with the calculator.

    Thats a nice looking truck. Is that a long bed or short bed? I can't really tell. Also is it an automatic or staright shift?

    The secret is training.

    Yes it's a long bed.

    I just added a headache rack also. Don't want to break that back window.

    Business has been very good to my family and I. And yes I think after the hard work, long hours and countless bumps in the road I should have a decent office on wheels.
